It's been a long time coming, but Microsoft will finally launch its next-generation operating system, Windows 10, on July 29. Amazingly, with just sixteen days left before the launch, the OS is still officially in the preview stages of its development, after plans to hit its crucial RTM milestone last week were pushed back.
Today, Microsoft revealed that it plans to give something back to the people who have been testing its new OS in recent months. The company said that it "will celebrate the unprecedented role our biggest fans - more than 5 million Windows Insiders - played in the development of Windows 10".
It promised to do so "at special events in 13 cities around the world, including Sydney, Tokyo, Singapore, Beijing, New Delhi, Dubai, Nairobi, Berlin, Johannesburg, Madrid, London, Sao Paolo and New York City."
If you need an incentive to try to attend one of these events, Microsoft says that "these celebrations will offer hands-on opportunities, experiential demos, entertainment and opportunities to meet the Windows team."
No further details are available on these events, but we expect to hear more about them over the next couple of weeks.
